The Luttrell Arms


Situated in the heart of Dunster, The Luttrell Arms is a landmark hotel with 28 en suite bedrooms, medieval features, secret gardens and a highly regarded restaurant.

The Luttrell Arms is a magical grade II listed hotel surrounded by dramatic countryside at the entrance to the beautiful rolling hills of Exmoor. Winner of Inn of the Year 2016 with the Good Pub Guide, the hotel sits beneath the gaze of Dunster Castle in the charming and untouched Somerset medieval village of Dunster with its own historic Yarn Market, an ancient church and a delightful range of independent shops.

Once known as The Ship Inn, the sea used to lap at its doors.  Today, the sea has receded leaving this landmark hotel sitting proud at the top of the village.

The hotel itself is close to wild open moorland, ancient woodland, Somerset’s dramatic coast, Exmoor’s international Dark Sky Reserve, and the county town of Taunton.

In the summer months the hotel provides the perfect place for romantic breaks with al fresco dining in its secret garden, which has stunning views over parkland, the castle and the village.  During the winter months its fires crackle creating a warm winter retreat with a welcoming atmosphere.

The hotel serves traditional cuisine and a fine selection of local ales, ciders and wines by the glass.

Psalter’s, the hotel’s highly regarded restaurant, is open for dinner serving fresh, locally sourced produce with regularly changing menus that reflect the seasons.

Licensed for civil wedding ceremonies the hotel’s Conygar room is perfect for intimate weddings, private dining parties, birthdays, shooting dinners and corporate events.

The hotel has 28 unique bedrooms, all of which are en-suite, many with original features and fireplaces.  With five four-poster bedrooms and a selection of rooms with queen-size beds, some with private terraces and garden access. This hotel is a destination for unique experiences and special interest breaks all year round. View our events page for more details.
